Deanna (Annie) Munk was born Monday, August 20 at 3:11. After waiting and waiting for the last 9 months, I finally convinced our doctor to let us be induced at 40 weeks and 3 days. I have never gone into labor on my own and am doubtful that my body can actually do that. I don't mind being induced, in fact I like that I can pack my bags, clean my house and vacuum my floor and leave for the hospital with out feeling any pain. Here I am with my "humongous" belly right before we left.(Laura loved to tell me I was humongous.)

We told Laura several months ago that the baby comes in August. She has been asking constantly since then "Is it August yet?" Now that it is August, she is a little confused and impatient. I am feeling the same way! The due date is not until this Thursday, but it seems that everyone keeps telling me that the baby will probably come early and for some reason I believed them. I don't know why I would believe the random lady at the grocery store or gym who tells me that it looks like I am ready, but I guess you believe what you want to hear. Anyways, they are all wrong. This baby is apparently waiting for her due date. I used to go to bed every night with a clean house and all my laundry done, just in case the baby came. Now I am saving my laundry up for a normal size load instead of mini daily loads since I obviously am not having this baby anytime soon. With my past 2 pregnancies I was induced. I am not even sure my body knows how to go into labor by myself. I am hoping to convince my doctor at my appt tomorrow to schedule an induction for Thursday, my due date. I have been spending the time getting everything ready for the baby. I finished her crib bedding.
